I decided on a buckhorn over a slug gun or a shotgun. I need a ml anyways because it's getting hard to find ammo for my rifle, and I can hunt all season if I get a ml (regular firearm + muzzleloader), I also bow hunt. I am familiar on how mls work and how to clean and load one. I have never fired one and I don't know what the recoil is like. Do they kick fast like a modern rifle or is it like a really heavy push like with slug guns? I plan to shoot 100 grains of powder (pellets) with powerbelts. Please help!!
